Remove Kms-r@1n.exe

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I want to buy a legit Windows key because I think KMS-R@1N is causing Microsoft Platform Protection Service to hog my CPU and making it run at full speed when it should be idle. I have disabled MPPS in my Registry which fixes that problem, but now Windows is flagging my pc as unlicensed. 

Could you help me remove KMS-R@1N from my PC? I have attached Addition and FRST.

Thanks in advance!

Hi cons1stency :)

My name is Aura and I'll be assisting you with your malware issue. Since we'll be working together, you can call me Aura or Yoan, which is my real name, it's up to you! Now that we've broke the ice, I'll just ask you a few things during the time we'll be working together to clean your system and get it back to an operational state.

  • As you'll notice, the logs we are asking for here are quite lenghty, so it's normal for me to not reply exactly after you post them. This is because I need some time to analyse them and then act accordingly. However, I'll always reply within 24 hours, 48 hours at most if something unexpected happens;
  • As long as I'm assisting you on Malwarebytes Forums, in this thread, I'll ask you to not seek assistance anywhere else for any issue related to the system we are working on. If you have an issue, question, etc. about your computer, please ask it in this thread and I'll assist you;
  • The same principle applies to any modifications you make to your system, I would like you to ask me before you do any manipulations that aren't in the instructions I posted. This is to ensure that we are operating in sync and I know exactly what's happening on your system;
  • If you aren't sure about an instruction I'm giving you, ask me about it. This is to ensure that the clean-up process goes without any issue. I'll answer you and even give you more precise instructions/explanations if you need. There's no shame in asking questions here, better be safe than sorry!;
  • If you don't reply to your thread within 3 days, I'll bump this thread to let you know that I'm waiting for you. If you don't reply after 5 days, it'll be closed. If you return after that period, you can send me a PM to get it unlocked and we'll continue where we left off;
  • Since malware can work quickly, we want to get rid of them as fast as we can, before they make unknown changes to the system. This being said, I would appreciate if you could reply to this thread within 24 hours of me posting. This way, we'll have a good clean-up rhythm and the chances of complications will be reduced;
  • I'm against any form of pirated, illegal and counterfeit software and material. So if you have any installed on your system, I'll ask you to uninstall them right now. You don't have to tell me if you indeed had some or not, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Plus, this would be against Malwarebytes Forums's rules;
  • In the end, you are the one asking for assistance here. So if you wish to go a different way during the clean-up, like format and reinstall Windows, you are free to do so. I would appreciate you to let me know about it first, and if you need, I can also assist you in the process;
  • I would appreciate if you were to stay with me until the end, which means, until I declare your system clean. Just because your system isn't behaving weirdly anymore, or is running better than before, it doesn't mean that the infection is completely gone;
    This being said, I have a full time job so sometimes it'll take longer for me to reply to you. Don't worry, you'll be my first priority as soon as I get home and have time to look at your thread;

This being said, it's time to clean-up some malware, so let's get started, shall we? :)

Please give me a few while I review your logs.

If I were you I would uninstall Ace Stream Media (both the program and extensions) and Popcorn Time. Ace Stream Media includes an adware module that is enabled after an X period of time, while the original Popcorn Time project is defunct, and while a lot of forks have been created afterward, most of them contain malicious codes (display ads for instance) and it's almost impossible to keep track of legit forks against malicious ones.

  • Right-click on the FRST executable and select Spcusrh.pngRun as Administrator (for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users);
  • Click on the Fix button;
  • On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad;
  • Copy and paste its content in your next reply;

Hey Aura, thanks for your help.

I have deleted Popcorn Time, I actually forgot that I even had it installed. I`ll be deleting AceStream asap, I`ll have to find another way to watch Formula 1.

The first time I attempted to Fix, the program crashed within a few seconds.
The second time it ran much longer, then a Window popped up from it. There was no text (maybe it was just supposed to be the completion message). When I pressed OK on the window my pc restarted.
